Hi guys, need some tech advice.
I bought my new seats, they are electric and cannot be lowered due to the way they are built, I want the electrics to work anyway.
,.
Do I cut down the original risers, or use something like 20x50 mm RHS to build a frame that fits the new seat securing points than fully weld the frames to the floor rockers and tunnel to keep the integrity..

Most people lower the risers.
But since you aren't using original (older) mustang seats, might be easier to make completely new mounts.

Wait for Kerry to respond Mr. Green

If the seat belts plugs stay part of the seats, will they need engineering?

Talk to your engineer first. Whoever is signing off on your car will have to be happy with how you fit the seats.

I assume you have had someone go over the changes to the car by now, as they usually want to inspect the welds etc before paint.

The 69 - 70 fastback risers will still be too high. 69 - 70 hardtop and convertible risers are same height as what you have.

Not allowed. Must use the factory Mustang mount positions according to all the engineers I have had dealings with. It is because of how the seat mounts (not crash tested) and they like the idea of the belts being independent of the seat in the event of an accident as it will help hold all in place (easier to locate the body Laughing )
